As the second daughter of a country music historian and a Jewish poet, Americana musician and songwriter Raina Rose revels in sharing with you her beautifully twisted, yet refreshingly optimistic perspective on the world. Her unique voice and exceptional guitar playing transcend age, gender, generation, and even catch the ears of those who aren't typically into acoustic guitar-driven songwriting. With a naturalist's eye, an artist's pen, and a lion's attack, Raina lays everything she has on the line; she makes you feel as if she's your best friend whispering a honeysuckle-sweet secret in your ear, warmly inviting you into a joyfully intimate and darkly candid conversation. It's that ability to forge her own path in the world of music that sets Raina apart from her contemporaries, and her “no holds barred, lay it on the line” brand of Americana that secures Raina’s place in music history as more than a mere footnote or a passing trend.
"...bursting with talent" - WFUV,
John Platt NYC
"Graceful and forever creative, Rose with this her fourth full-length album... reaches out to the listener as she twists and turns on striving to dig deep and create imagery of a variety to stay put in the mind of one. Rose’s flair and enthusiasm coupled with an excellent vocal control and strong emotive drive lend a rare dimension to her work all too few female Americana or otherwise posses."
